Privacy Policy

Global Deeds’ commitment to privacy

Global Deeds understands the importance of efficiently and respectfully managing your information.  We are very careful of how your information is used and shared, and we appreciate your trust in our procedures. This Privacy Policy explains our protocols and how you can choose the way your information is collected and used by us.  This applies particularly to donor information we collect online and the information provided by our subscribers.

Our Privacy Policy has been updated in order to take into consideration the new requirements of the General Data Protection Regulation (“GDPR”), and as a citizen of the EU, you may be entitled to certain additional protections under GDPR.

What kind of information is collected by Global Deeds?

We only collect voluntary personal information that you submit to us online.

Subscribers’ information includes:

  1.  Name
  2. Email address

In addition to the above information that you submit to us, Global Deeds also has access to third-party technologies that provide us with additional information from prospective subscribers.  Additionally, our web servers may collect information, such as pages visited, time of visits, IP addresses and referring websites.

Cookies are simple text files stored by your web browser that help us distinguish between the different kinds of visitors to our website.  This allows us to provide more valuable content based on the pages you visit most.

How is information transferred and stored?

Global Deeds is located in the United States, hence all the information we transfer and store is located within the United States.  International users must be made aware of the fact that rules from the USA (as in the case of the EU) do not offer extra protection.

How does Global Deeds use information?

We collect information mainly to accept donations, and to inform subscribers about our programs, special projects, and events.  As an organization, we are required to study the data collected in order to understand how to best serve our users and supporters, how to improve our online communication and how to strategize our outreach.  Other purposes include processing volunteer and employment applications.

With whom does Global Deeds share information?

We do not trade, sell, or share information that you provide to us with other organizations.

Your information shall be shared only under a legal situation that merits such transfer, or if we are participating in behavioral advertising studies.  Such advertising may appear on our website and it uses things such as cookies in order to determine which products and services you are interested in.

We implement Google’s Invisible reCAPTCHA to protect our site from spam and hacker attacks. The use of this service is subject to Google’s privacy policy and terms.

Cookies

Our Privacy Policy explains our principles when it comes to the collection, processing, and storage of your information. The Cookie Policy specifically explains how we, our partners, and users of our services deploy cookies, as well as the options you have to control them.

What are cookies?

Cookies are small pieces of data, stored in text files, that are stored on your computer or other device when websites are loaded in a browser. They are widely used to ‘remember’ you and your preferences, either for a single visit (through a ‘session cookie’) or for multiple repeat visits (using a ‘persistent cookie’). They ensure a consistent and efficient experience for visitors, and perform essential functions such as allowing users to register and remain logged in. Cookies may be set by the site that you are visiting (known as ‘first party cookies’), or by third parties, such as those who serve content or provide advertising or analytics services on the website (‘third party cookies’).

Cookies set by GlobalDeeds.com

We use cookies for a number of different purposes. Some cookies are necessary for technical reasons; some enable a personalized experience for both visitors and registered users; and some allow the display of advertising from selected third party networks. Some of these cookies may be set when a page is loaded, or when a visitor takes a particular action (clicking the ‘like’ or ‘follow’ button on a post, for example).

Below the different categories of cookies set by GlobalDeeds.com are outlined, with specific examples detailed in the tables that follow. This includes their name and purpose. Certain cookies are only set for logged-in visitors, whereas others are set for any visitors, and these are marked below accordingly. Where a cookie only applies to specific subdomains, they are included under the relevant header.

Strictly Necessary: These are the cookies that are essential for GlobalDeeds.com to perform basic functions. These include those required to allow registered users to authenticate and perform account related functions.

Functionality: These cookies are used to store preferences set by users such as account name, language, and location.

Performance: Performance cookies collect information on how users interact with websites hosted on GlobalDeeds.com, including what pages are visited most, as well as other analytical data. These details are only used to improve how the website functions.

Tracking: These are set by trusted third party networks (e.g. Google Analytics) to track details such as the number of unique visitors, and pageviews to help improve the user experience.

Third Party/Embedded Content: GlobalDeeds.com makes use of different third party applications and services to enhance the experience of website visitors. These include social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter (through the use of sharing buttons), or embedded content from YouTube and Vimeo. As a result, cookies may be set by these third parties, and used by them to track your online activity. We have no direct control over the information that is collected by these cookies.
